Hi

I recently joined the forum... be gentle with me ;o)

I would love to know your favourite places to find graphics for background images / effects, graphics & icons for website design.

I recently started developing different sites for different people which means I always have to search for new things/ looks... My photoshop skills isn't great so it would save me time if I knew where to find inexpensive sources of graphic materials.

I am aware of deviantart & istockphotos... any gurus out there willing to share their links?

Fonts are all over the place... pick and chose those carefully, clarity of presentation is very important.

Images? I carry a digital with me everywhere I go. You'd be amazed at what's on the sidewalk (I actually mean what is ON the sidewalk) that is interesting for images. Other image sources are local high school art departments. You'd be amazed at what can be had for a few bucks and a byline.

If you need images, we're graphic designers who started our own free stock site. Our bank of images is small, but growing.

Click on an ad or donate, if you want give back. Comments and suggestions also welcome. If there's interest, we'll keep it growing.

Free for any use, commercial or otherwise, no royalties etc. No people (so no model release issues), but pretty much everything else is fair game.
